The mandelbrot source seems to output RGBA, but histogram does not
support RGBA (nor any RGB, AFAICT). So inserting the format filter is
the right thing, but perhaps using "format=gbrap" may be more lossless.
(I admit I don't have a lot of expertise when it comes to formats.)

I checked the sources to see that histogram supports gbrap (and gbrp
and gbrp9 and ...).
